Photography Exhibit 2008

In late 2007, The Bicentennial Art Center & Museum invited me to have a one artist exhibit of some of my work to be hung from December 2-31, 2008.  During the year I printed and mounted 120 14 x 18" color and black and white images.  I wanted 2/3 to be black and white and 1/3 color.  I asked three local artists to pick and hang the show.  When all was done it turned out to be 50/50.  My three favorite images missed the cut.


The turnout for the reception was very nice.   I had just transitioned from a full lab for developing film and printing to using digital images to print.  Digital was just becoming used by professionals and still did not have the reputation of silver gelatin for black and white images. An excellent professional local artist, Ed Gillum, spent time looking at the hung show.  He came to me and said I had been "holding out on him" because he had not previously seen some.  I responded that all had been printed in the last 30 days and he said you told me you got rid of the darkroom.  I said Ed they are all digitally processed in Photoshop  and printed on an Epson 4900 printer.  The key for the black and white is that I had used Hammermuhl Bayata paper. 


The visitors to the art center while the show was hung voted for their favorite image.  The winner was "Hodge Hardware."
